"I am convinced of the power of scholarships to help make a difference – to the lives of our students … and to the future of Australia."
- Rob Norris, donor and former Dean of the Faculty of Science
The Faculty of Science Dean’s Postgraduate Research Scholarship Program gives scholarships to Masters by Research and PhD students, giving the faculty’s brightest graduates an immediate pathway to a higher degree.
The former Dean of Science Professor Rob Norris established the program to help address a national need for more investment in science and technology research. Professor Norris and his wife Margaret donate to the fund annually and have made a bequest to the Faculty of Science.
Scholarships are awarded to students pursuing a Higher Degree by Research after achieving first class honours.
The scheme is structured as an endowment fund and donations are encouraged in order to grow the money available for scholarships.
